I have been creating free content for the better part of two and a half decades. From in-depth papers on forensics and anti-forensics, to detailed analysis of events that skirt both international espionage and cyber security.
I have been quoted and referenced in "The NYT" / "WaPo" / "Wired" / "VICE" and my work is referenced constantly at security conferences. (If not for my deep insights, certainly for my use of memes!)

My work is unbiased, unencumbered by alliances to corporate masters, irreverent and is backed by a lifetime in the trenches. While opportunities to produce such content abounds for people willing to shill products or scare customers towards megacorps, I'd prefer sticking to the truth (its often more interesting than fiction).

Help me keep it this way. You will have my gratitude and will help ensure that I can keep on creating such content.

I've no plans to create any Patreon specific content, it'll all still be freely available on Medium, my Tumblr and Twitter.

Some recent examples include:
Rewards
Cyber Cyber
$5 or more per month 48 patrons
Pay for my books and discuss them, if you are so inclined. 

Includes
  • Access to the Slack channel.
Cyber Green
$10 or more per month 12 patrons
There is no actual reward. I will spend your money on books.

I can't obsessively research security topics that strike my fancy without lots of books.

Includes
  • Access to the Slack channel.
Cyber Silver
$20 or more per month 5 patrons
I'll seriously consider making a bibliography of the books I get, plus possibly reviews. 

Includes
  • Access to the Slack channel.
Cyber Gold
$50 or more per month 3 patrons
Swag is on the way! Actually that is a lie. I will just get books for myself. 

Honestly, I will keep writing anyway, but more books would be great. 

Includes
  • Access to the Slack channel.
Cyber Platinum
$100 or more per month 1 patron
Every month, you and I will hang out on a one on one video chat.  (Not really, but it's the thought that counts.)

Also, you'll get all the other rewards, which, again, is just me publishing free content. 


Includes
  • Access to the Slack channel.
Cyber Diamond
$500 or more per month 0 patrons
I'll write a post on whatever you want from the following list: cyber, security, terrorism, criminal security, or intelligence/counter-intelligence. 

Includes
  • Access to the Slack channel.
